locate handymen for oddjobs and yardwork (app)

a startup idea shared by Shak on 03/11/2018

With job outsourcing, automation and income inequality in the U.S. widening day by day resulting in the destruction of the middle class and half the country earning less than $30,000 annually, many able bodied laborers might find themselves in need of a little extra cash just to survive. Many people (namely the elderly and disabled) might be in need of some quick heavy lifting or high out of reach work done around the home and not everyone has someone they might be able to depend on. One simple example I imagine is perhaps an elderly person wanting to put up Christmas lights which could be a little dangerous. I think it would work best as an app. Uber took the taxi industry's market by eliminating the middle man. I believe direct connecting the labor with the need for basic simple tasks could recreate the same success. For liability purposes I would not recommend implementing scheduling or any real hands on system simply facilitating communications so they can talk to each other and determine for themselves how best to proceed.
